  1. Another great report, as usual, Bill…
    It’s amazing to hear your updates from such a remote, far away place on earth…
    Smiled when you related the passing of the line-fixing team… slow and steady wins the race…

  2. Namaste Bill, You’ve always been a great “sweeper” on the trails–your efforts are beyond admirable! As you are climbing, I’ll think of you as I creep down the hospital hall after knee replacement surgery–you’ll be my inspiration to go further.



  3. Namaste, Bill. I have been listening to every audio report; what a thrill your reports bring! I am living vicariously through you. Your closeness to the mountain and the reflection of your climbs, challenges, celebrations all keep us close to you. Thank you for sharing your reality from one of the most amazing places on earth. I will keep you close to my heart as you move towards the summit. As Andrew wrote from Denali….”Remember, it’s the getting there that determines our character, not the arrival.” xo Clarice

  4. What an inspiration you are, Bill! It pains me to hear of your explorations, as I climb up & down my tiny hill. My prayers are always with you & I pray for excellent weather for the rest of your climb. God Bless, Betty.

  5. We are all so excited about your continued progress, Bill. Slow and steady and SAFE sounds good to me!

    Reed came home from Chico this past week and we have been thinking about you and praying for your awesome journey!
